Even though the library is closed through December 26th, we still wanted to take a minute to wish all of our wonderful patrons a very merry Christmas. We hope this weekend is filled with love, family, delicious food, and maybe even a few minutes of peaceful reading by a warm hearth. If you’re still struggling to get into the holiday spirit, here are a few of our favorite quotes about the holidays. We hope they bring you some Christmas cheer.
“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.” This quote by Charles Dickens – author of A Christmas Carol
– helps us remember that the loving, charitable spirit of Christmas need not be a felt just once a year. We can all try a little harder to spread peace and good will in our families and in our community all year long!
“One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas Day. Don’t clean it up too quickly.” This quote from radio host and television writer Andy Rooney reminds us to enjoy every moment of the holidays, especially the messy ones. We hope that you take the time to live each moment fully rather than rushing to the day’s next scheduled event.
“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.” This quote from Buddy the Elf is on our list as a reminder that there are only two days left to watch this now classic Christmas movie
, and as a reminder that Christmas is the time of year to forget your insecurities and sing proudly no matter your skill level!
“Very little is needed to make a happy life.” Although this quote by Marcus Aurelius is not specifically holiday related, we think it’s a wonderful mantra for this time of year. No matter how tempting the big, shiny things are, always remember that it takes very little to have a wonderful Christmas, especially when you are spending it with the people who matter most.
